Relationship enhancement (RE) therapy combines a psychoeducational skillstraining approach with deep emotional processing designed to transform couples’ and families’ negative patterns of interaction into positive, nurturing ones to facilitate healing of ruptured relationships. The core RE skills focus on how to manage conflict effectively and how to dialogue in order to uncover clients’ most vital feelings, concerns, and desires. This, in turn, empowers even the most distressed couples/families to resolve current and future problems on their own. An additional strength of RE therapy is that it equalizes power within relationships, both between genders and across generations. RE therapy is supported by 40 years of research that validates its clinical effectiveness. Workshop participants will be introduced to the practice of RE therapy and will learn how the process is used in clinical practice via videotaped therapy sessions, live demonstrations, and experiential sessions.
